"Drunk History" (TV show) on Comedy Central is a series where historical reenactments by A-list talent are presented by inebriated storytellers.

Put down the books and grab a drink! Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series that has had millions of hits on YouTube and Funny or Die, the television show follows the drunken and often incoherent narration of historical moments. Creator and star Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of great actors that have participated to date, will lead viewers from town to town across the country, presenting the rich histories that every city in this land, both great and small, have to offer. 

Following storytellers' drunken narration, Waters and Konner filmed reenactments of historical events starring A-list actors including Jack Black, Jim Carrey, Michael Cera, Zooey Deschanel, Ryan Gosling, John C. Reilly, Jason Ritter and Danny McBride. A "Drunk History" short produced for the HBO series "Funny or Die Presents," starring Ferrell as Abraham Lincoln and Don Cheadle as Frederick Douglass, received The Jury Prize for Best American Short Film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

The all-star cast reenacts the story of Claudette Colvin, the little-known teenager who inspired Rosa Parks' (Lisa Bonet) historic stance; the Joe Louis (Terry Crews) v. Max Schmeling (Tim Heidecker) fights of the late 1930s, featuring 'Weird Al' Yankovic as Hitler; and the history of chemist Percy Julian (Jordan Peele).
